During Vero Beach, Florida’s regular city council meeting on September 17th, the council signed a pro-NRA proclamation. This was in response to the San Francisco, California Board of Supervisors unanimously voting to declare the NRA a terrorist organization, a move that has since prompted a lawsuit by the NRA.
Vero Beach Mayor Val Zudans, MD also wrote a scathing letter on official city letterhead blasting San Francisco’s action against NRA members. This provoked a columnist from The San Francisco Examiner to publish an opinion piece titled “A letter to the Florida mayor who trashed our fine city of San Francisco”.
We’re well aware many people have been critical of the NRA, but I’m sure we can all agree NRA members are not terrorists.
The gun control fight has been seeping into towns and cities across the country, from the passage of Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions as we’ve seen here in Colorado, to Assault Weapons bans as Boulder passed in 2018, and anti-gun resolutions such as what was just adopted by the city of Longmont on September 10th.
If you discover pro or anti-gun measures being brought up in YOUR cities, please contact us.
Here’s is what the resolution reads:
WHEREAS, the 11 member City of San Francisco Board of Supervisors in their official government position unanimously declared the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “domestic terrorist organization”; and
WHEREAS, millions of law-abiding American NRA members were labelled terrorists; and
WHEREAS, the First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the freedom of association and right to petition the government for a redress of grievances; and
WHEREAS, the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees our right to due process; and
WHEREAS, the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees equal protection of the laws; and
WHEREAS, San Francisco’s official government action threatens all of these fundamental Constitutional rights;
WHEREAS, the National Rifle Association is our stanch defender of these fundamental Constitutional rights and not a domestic terrorist organization.
NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of Vera Beach, Florida does hereby proclaim the National Rifle Association an extraordinary defender of Americans’ Constitutional Civil Rights.
